Reviewers Reviewed, by Anna Cora Mowatt Ritchie (1819 - 1870)

This project is complete! All files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/reviewers-reviewed-by-anna-cora-mowatt-ritchie/
This text was a response to the drubbing the fledgling poet received at the hands of the critics for her debut work, “Pelayo, or the Cavern of Covadonga.” The poem stages a mock trial of her reviewers, lambasting them as pitilessly for their shortcomings as she believed she was called out for hers. Merited or not, the poet’s strident allegations do lay bare some of the most odious editorial practices of the day. The author reported “Reviewers Reviewed” significantly outsold the book it defended. (Summary by Kelly Taylor)

Target completion date: 2024-07-30

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

This is set up. :)

Do you want me to put in a cover preclaim while I'm thinking of it? (EDIT: I did so; I can reverse it if you don't want the pre-claim.)

Hi Kelly,
She was quite good at putting the men/critics in their place! Notes for Canto 1:
1:11--"express" to "press" in "to the penny press"
1:35--add "be it" to "or be it wrong"
2:13--omit the extra "love" in "music loved"
3:33--change "changed" to "chained" in "chained the tongue of reason"
5:08--add "and usury" in "since gold and usury can tempt them..."
18:10--change "o'erchanged" to "o'ercharged" in the o"ercharged soul"
20:57--"change" to "chain" in "can they forever chain?"
21:25--add "how" in "know not how--or when"
21:41--change "Frame" to "Fame" in "the wreath of Fame"
22:55--change "in this" to "this in" "this in covert scorn"
28:12--omit "thy" in "Now let man's ignorance"
28:44--change "pendant" to "pedant" in "each empty pedant yields"
31:29--fix phrase " then be not thus with fury wild"
37:30--change "meet with" to "with meet" in "with meet discretion"
39:29--add missing line after "nap" "Can yield to Slander...screen"
40:10--change "is" to "was" in "In short, it was an art"
43:07--change "here" to "there" for rhyme in "our new Adonis there"
48:11--change "but take" to "take but" in "Justice take but little care."
Thanks,
Lora

Yes! A very sharp and pointed rebuttal to come from a proper young Victorian lady!
